For the past two years, Dr. Linn Orr, Executive Director of the Hood River History Museum, and curator/archivist Natalia Maria Fernandez, have been collaborating on an exhibition entitled Talking History/Talking Spanish, which runs September through November at the the museum and traces the Latino experience in the Hood River Valley.
Join Gorge Owned on Wednesday, November 8, as Orr, Fernandez and exhibition team members discuss factors that have molded Latino life in the Hood River region. They will take us on a cultural journey from distant Latino countries to the farms of the Hood River Valley, to weddings, baptisms and other cultural celebrations, to restaurants, storefronts and many other meaningful places. Together the panel will explore the shifting fortunes and rising success of the Latino community and their vital contribution to the economic and cultural life of the Gorge.
